How to open ASUS Vivobook 17 (X1702) - disassembly and upgrade options

ASUS Vivobook 17 (X1702) review – large footprint but short battery life
Source: Laptop Media English
As usual, the low-to-medium budget section of the market is saturated with tons of good devices. Those of 17-inch size are not that popular but still get into the mix. In particular, Vivobook 17 (X1702) shows a decent performance, which doesn’t drop too much after long periods of time. More so, it provides some upgradeability, like a single RAM SODIMM slot (paired with some soldered memory), and an M.2 PCIe x4 slot for Gen 3 or Gen 4 storage. ASUS Vivobook 17 (X1702)’s 17-inch IPS panel has a Full HD resolution, good contrast ratio, and comfortable viewing angles. It doesn’t use PWM for brightness adjustment, which is great. However, its 52% sRGB color coverage is a limiting factor in visual perception. The disappointing color coverage is not too bad for a laptop in this price range. However, its battery life is drastically lower than that of one of its main competitors – the IdeaPad 3 (17″, 2022). It lasts nearly 3 hours less in Web browsing but closes that gap to a two-hour deficit in video playback. Unfortunately, this means that you won’t be able to use your device for an entire workday only on battery power. Thankfully, the comfort is not hindered, as its keyboard is great, while the touchpad is simply fantastic – Probably the best in its class. Again, you have to be wary of its port selection. Since there is no SD card reader of any sort, and the USB Type-C port is limited to data transfer only, we consider it to be unsatisfactory. At the end of the day, we think that Vivobook 17 (X1702) is worth considering. Especially if you find a good deal on it. What is a good deal on this device? Well, that’s if it’s cheaper than the IdeaPad 3 (17″, 2022).

98%: This model is obviously considered exceptional by the testers. There are almost no laptops that are rated this well. If the reviews or the sources that give these ratings are to be taken seriously, then it is a very clear buy recommendation. Unfortunately, sometimes top scores are also squandered.
